Even thought we ended up not adopting from this shelter they went above and beyond! We were trying to get a friend for our single bunny and took her to pick one out. She picked one out and we brought him home only to have trouble bonding them. They have a wonderful bunny bonding boot camp at the shelter and we took them back to try that. Unfortunately our girl bun does not get along with anyone! And at this time we couldn't have 2 single buns so we picked her back up after about 2 weeks of trying to bond her. I think we were all disappointed she didn't want to bond but that's her personality (at least I know it's not just me that can't bond her!)
This shelter is wonderful and so well organized! I love all of the other services they do, like the boot camp and therapy bunnies! Whenever the time comes for us to get another bun, we will definitely be going back!

This rescue is amazing as it is nearly self sustaining. Not only is it an animal rescue but some of the animals are trained at the Rescue to be therapy pets. The founder of F5RS is an amazing person.

Recently I came upon the rescue, Frisky Ferrets, Fuzzies and Feather Friends Rescue and Sanctuary, due to one of my bunny friends sharing their link for their Hoppy Holiday's Shopping BUNanza. I found so many wonderful items for my bunny friends for Christmas, as well as myself. Everything was beautiful and very reasonably priced. The ornaments I ordered were so nice and even the stuffed animals were in pristine condition with tags still on them. When I requested an item that had already been sold, they contacted me and went out of their way to accommodate me. Very personable people and I plan on shopping there again soon. There's nothing better than buying gifts for friends, knowing you are helping animals at the same time. Kristen from CT.

Although I'm in North West England, Sara at F5RS has helped me with advice via social media regarding rabbit health and welfare which has meant my own bunny has a better life. I've tried to donate where I can to help with their never ending vet and feed bills.
I have also had messages of concern and support when my own health takes a dip.
Sara, you rock

I went to F5RS looking for rabbit to adopt and bond with my rabbit who had lost his mate. I found that and so much more. They are great people and they do great work. I frequently drove an hour to go and volunteer with them. They work tirelessly to save animals and to promote proper care and knowledge of small animals. As a nonprofit rescue, they struggle with funding every single day, but they never hesitate to give back to the community. They volunteer, they visit, they donate and help spread awareness of other organizations that also serve the community. They are much more than a rescue saving animals, they are making an impact far beyond the animals they save.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More funds and greater fundraising so they could get a better physical space.

My daughter has participated in their somebunny to read to program the past two years and they even brought the rabbits to our Girl Scout meeting to take about animal care. The ladies and rabbits are amazing!!

F5RS staff are the most caring, loving, genuine, and knowledgable small group I've ever met!! They have helped me so much, have a wonderful online store which proceeds go 100% to their nonprofit needs like vet bills, and have offered endless assistance and information to me about my two fur children!!!

I cannot even begin to say how great this non-profit is! They do such amazing work by touching the lives of all types of individuals from older adults to children with autism. The team is knowledgeable, professional and courteous. They have such a big heart to not only rescue rabbits and other animals in need but to also use those animals to help and heal others. If I could give them more then five stars I would because they are one organization that sure deserves the recognition! Cheers to you in helping to make the world a better place.
